According to residents, the bandits arrived at the school on motorbikes as the pupils were about to close for the day.

Witnesses say the gunmen shot sporadically to cause commotion in the school premises, and to scare away passersby.

The gunmen had not made any contact with the school or families of the kidnap victims to demand ransom as at press time.


Also, neither the school authority nor the Katsina State Police Command had made any public statements as at the time of filing this report.
